Body Talk - 13th January

How can you beat those winter colds naturally?

There are a wide range of aromatherapy oils available to soothe and uplift.

Aloe Vera gel soothes chapped skin and helps the healing process. It's ideal to rub around the nose and lips when they get sore.

Basil is antiseptic and stimulating. Good for increasing the circulation.

Ginger is also antiseptic  and stimulating. Good for restoring energy .

Lemon is cleansing and purifying. It is very refreshing.

Rosemary eases congestion and it's antiseptic action helps to fight infection.

Tea Tree can be used to combat all types of respiratory infections, earaches and cold sores.

A good massage with black pepper oil is very invigorating and will warm aching muscles and relieve sore joints.

If you suffer from cold sores, try using lemon balm oil or St John's Wort cream.

The best medicine you can have is a good night's sleep. Ideally 7 or 8 hours. That will keep you bright and alert and give your body plenty of time to heal.
